Rockin' Robbins announces changed line-up
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the bands have had to make several changes to their 2020 event calendars. As a result, Rockin' Robbins organizers have had to do some juggling as well.
WILLMAR — Rockin’ Robbins, the Willmar Rotary Club’s series of four free Tuesday concerts at Robbins Island Regional Park in Willmar, will kick off July 14 at 5 p.m..
The bands announced in January remain the same, but because of COVID-19 the first two weeks have been changed.
“Mason Dixon Line” will open the series July 14, followed by “Chase & Ovation” with a salute to Prince on July 21.
The rest of the lineup remains the same, with “Wild Angels” and their Women of Rock, Pop & Country show on July 28 and ending the season with the “Fabulous Armadillos” on August 4.
There is a local opening act at 5 p.m. each date, followed by the headline band.
There are food vendors, a beer and wine tent, kids activities and the Foot Lake Market featuring handcrafted items, exhibitors, non-profit organizations, face painting, henna tattoos and more planned for each evening as well. Bring a lawn chair.
A free shuttle bus will again run from 4:30 to 9:30 p.m. every 15 minutes from the Park & Ride locations at Kennedy Elementary School, Willmar Middle School and the Willmar Civic Center.
